Get Protection On Your Purchases With Your Credit Card

Tip created over a year ago.

A fantastic benefit for consumers looking for a credit card is that you automatically get protection on your purchased items against a fault or been described incorrectly by the retailer. This is one of the great benefits of paying by credit cards rather than using a debt card when making any purchases.

Credit cards automatically provide protection under the Consumer Credit Act for goods and services. It only applies for purchases more than 100 pounds if they deemed to be faulty or not described as they should. You can claim back the cost of any item from the credit card company.

When you apply for Virgin credit cards they will protect your purchases automatically. See what other benefits they are offering.
